In partnership with Architects Declare, RIBA presents the Built Environment Summit 2021.
The Built Environment Summit is a global conference taking place on 28-29 October 2021. The summit is a call to action, bringing together professionals from across the international built environment sector to address the urgent need to reduce carbon emissions, of which the industry contributes almost 40% globally.
Over two days, speakers from across the globe, appearing both physically and virtually, will lead topical discussions, explore and share innovative practice, and encourage inter-disciplinary thinking to tackle the crisis and provide inspiration to drive significant change in behaviour.
We cannot meet the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C limit above pre-industrial levels without transforming the way we plan, design, build, operate and adapt our built environment.
In the lead up to COP26, we will demonstrate the importance of cross-industry collaboration to harness political support and embolden governments to work with the international built environment sector to decarbonise construction. The time for change is now.
